The devastation inflicted by Hurricane Michael came into focus Thursday with rows upon rows of homes found smashed to pieces, and rescue crews struggling to enter stricken areas in hopes of accounting for hundreds of people who may have stayed behind

Officers were dispatched to Sperry Street at Goffe Street around 10 p.m. after getting a report of an assault with gunfire.

The victims cousin, a 24-year-old Hamden man, was waiting in his car. When he heard the commotion, he told police he got out of his car and Strickland stabbed him in the bicep.

The man from Hamden had a gun on him and Strickland in the chest. Officers said he has a valid pistol permit and his gun was lawfully registered to him. The shooter has not been charged.
